The Vietnamese Language At Cornell
The Vietnamese language program at the Department of Asian Studies at Cornell offers four levels of language training in Vietnamese from elementary to advanced, and a course in independent study. Four language skills, including speaking, listening, reading and writing are important components of the course.
